Gum People (also called Gum Golems and Bubblegum Humanoids) are recurring race of Candy People in Adventure Time. Candy is one of the four main elements that make up the Earth, the others being slime, fire, and ice. Gum people naturally take the appearance of humanoids composed of bubblegum, having pink hair and skin tones. The Mother Gum, a collection of living blob-like beings made of mutated bubblegum, spawned the currently living known gum people, Princess Bubblegum, ruler of the Candy Kingdom, and her brother, Neddy, a gum dragon. Other gum people such as Gumbald, Lolly, and Chicle were created by Princess Bubblegum.
